Hello all,

Has someone use the VI Perl Toolkit from vmware  VI Perl Toolkit Programming
monitor the esxi ? ESX i ( the free version) don't have a console so
can't run the xymon client. I'm trying to convert a nagios esx  script
 . But if someone have already done it  or have a better idea could
save me
some time and of other friends too.

Thanks in advance,
